A Mayer Hawthorne + Jake One Collaboration
Tuxedo is Grammy nominated renaissance man Mayer Hawthorne (Aquarius) and Grammynominated producer Jake One (Taurus). They are descendants of the one-word moniker family of funk, where you will find groups such as Chic, Shalamar, Plush & Zapp.
The Tuxedo collaboration began with an exchange of boogie funk mixtapes back in 2006. “They had a lot of the same songs on them.” said Jake. “I couldn’t believe there was another person in the world that cared about this style of music.”
The fruits of a long-standing kinship were three tracks that mysteriously showed up on Internet doorsteps nearly two years ago. In between Mayer’s solo albums, and Jake’s productions for Drake, Fun., J. Cole, etc., these three tracks became a full album’s worth of Tuxedo. The album was mixed by original disco don dada John Morales at his home studio in South Plainfield, New Jersey. “I flew out there,” Mayer says. “John made me spaghetti and everything.”
The duo’s debut self-titled album was released on Stones Throw Records in 2015, which also marks Mayer’s return to the label since his debut release of A Strange Arrangement in 2009. Tuxedo debuted at No. 6 on the R&B Albums chart and No. 2 on the Heatseekers chart, and went on to receive critical acclaim by prestigious publications including Billboard and Noisey
People are saying...
“Tuxedo is bringing disco and funk back for the third time!”– Noisey
“The music is good, in fact it's right up my street. While not bringing anything new to the table, it pushes all the right buttons... irresistible bedroom-banger with a slinky-smooth groove and some great "come-to-bed" vocals. ” – Soul Bounce
“In case you don’t get the picture, what I’m trying to tell you is that this is highly enjoyable.” – okayplayer
